I am currently building a set of ‘cornhole’ boards…basically a bag toss game, out of 5/8” plywood. the boards are constructed of a 2”x4” frame, with top dimensions of 2’x4’ sheet of plywood. I will be painting (oil primed, latex paint) 3” strip around the perimeter of the board, and staining the interior to look like a basketball court.
My main concern is the finish to protect these things and get something that will even out and be uniformly smooth (so the bags can slide and not just stick to the board). I am curious to hear opinions on brushed on poly, spray lacquer (I have HVLP gun), or using bar-top epoxy. The boards are used outside exclusively but will be brought inside when not used. We will be using them on beaches, near rivers, and generally won’t be subject to water immersion or even direct water contact; but occasionaly will get wet from wet bathing suits, spilled beers/cocktails, etc…
So what do you guys recomend and can you recomend specific products…I was thinking the bar-top epoxy would be the best bet, but they are pretty expensive.
example is below with the paint/stain pattern as described above.
